Visiting an art museum with children is a bit daunting, but this place is different. This museum has a great collection including a restored Rembrandt and a fun digital art exhibit. We were followed around by security because our 5yr old twins were with us (which I understand as we had the only children in the gallery at the time).... More

I have been to some amazing museums around the world, including the Louvre. But this local gem always amazes me. They have a great collection and a family friendly atmosphere. It's a place I can take my kids to expose them to the masters as well as a variety of different types of art. And now it's FREE admission!!

The museum has great galleries of older European artists. Well-known American artists of the 18th thru 20th century are in the collections. American artists such as Karl Bodmer and others would provide a great visual history lesson of American. It would be worth going to the Joslyn just for the outdoor sculpture exhibits which kids would enjoy. The museum is... More

Wonderful exhibits of sculpture, artwork and crafts. Actually have some Renaissance painting and Impressionist art. Loads of modern art and even Western and Oriental pieces.The building itself and the grounds are spectacular and well designed. Overall very Impressed and frankly surprised at overall quality.

I have lived in Omaha for many years and never knew this Gallery existed. Found it by accident. Well worth a visit.

Good news is the museum is free but they do have a small fee for special exhibits. Also, there is not an overwhelming amount of art. Just perfect for a hour visit or you can spend more time analyzing! Definitely worth a visit.

We visited the 'Dirt Meridian' photo display at the Joslyn Art Museum on a recent visit to Omaha. The Joslyn is a fine facility; they did a nice job with the display. And, the fact that Kent Haruf and I attended college together was an 'added bonus'

Permanent collection has many pieces from well known artists... Degas, Renoir, Pissarro, W. Homer, G. bellows and good works from Karl Bodmer. This is not a place to "zip" through...plan on 3 hours especially if you take in the special exhibit "Dirt Meridian" which costs extra, but is well worth it. Happy trails
